7pm Eastern






Get ready for a fierce, tongue-in-cheek, Passive House throwdown, pitting two world-leading centers of Passive House construction—New York City and Vancouver, BC—against one another in a head-to-head, toe-to-toe Battle of the Cities. Andreas Benzing (the NYC-based Passive House architect and board president of NY Passive House) will face off against Scott Kennedy (the Vancouver-based Passive House architect and board chair of Passive House Canada) for this rapid-fire display of the two cities’ most exemplary Passive House buildings. It all goes down at our July 1 Global Passive House Happy Hour.

This Happy Hour showdown is a riff on that afternoon’s “Vancouver & New York State: Two Climate Leaders Show Their Cards” session at NAPHN’s Passive House 2020 conference, a plenary presentation by Greg Hale of NYSERDA and Sailen Black of the City of Vancouver. We invite you to take in the conference and then join us for the Happy Hour for our fast, factual, and fun evening with our two Passive House warriors from NYC and Vancouver.

Please join us for what promises to be an entertaining evening, full of social connection and Passive House inspiration.
